you need to do is pick up or logon to papers like "the boston globe." >>> president obama talking about the hometown paper at white house correspondents' dinner. and joining me from baus kevin cullen columnist for "boston globe." >> i hope he follows that up with a digital subscription. >> now, you had a richly detailed piece in the paper the other day about the scene at the boat where dzhokhar tsarnaev was captured and the police supervisor on the scene yelling, hold your fire and turning to the squad team, he hurt your guy, cuff him. how did you get the police officers to recount the story in such detail? >> howie, the best way to explain it. obviously, this is the most followed news story for the last two weeks in the world. for us here at "the boston globe" it is a local story. so, one of the reasons, personally, this has such an impact on me is that i know a lot of these first responders. i mean, i've known them for years and that's why i think it was a little different. i was in northern ireland in 1998 and in london in 2005 when more than 50 people were m murdered on the tu

on many fronts today. president obama again talking trade and immigration reform down in mexico before leaving the country he named kenny pritzker of the marriott hotel family as our new commerce secretary. in boston, the marathon bombing suspect told investigators he and his brother originally planned to plant suicide bombs on the fourth of july but get the bombs done early sol they would focus on the boston marathon instead that. and a whole lot more instead coming up on current tv. going to do the young turks. i think the number one thing that viewers like about the young turks is that we're honest. they know that i'm not bs'ing them with some hidden agenda, actually supporting one party or the other. when the democrats are wrong, they know that i'm going to be the first one to call them out. they can question whether i'm right, but i think that the audience gets that this guy, to the best of his ability, is trying to look out for us. >> if you believe in state's rights but still support the drug war you must be high. >> "viewpoint" digs deep into the issues of the d

about long term problems, we would be thinking about the long term unemployment. obama has talked about this somewhat but that is not where washington's mindset is right now. >> you mentioned manufacturing. zero gain there. in other areas, professional business services, leisure, hospitality, 43,000. that may improve over the summer. health care, 19,000. construction, lost 6,000. government lost 11,000. are those losses, you mentioned government. is the construction number the result of sequester? >> there's been a lougs boom. whether or not that will continue after such a low base. the other thing to look into these number is that professional business services, a lot of these are really, really poorly paid jobs. yes, you have a job if you have 26,000 a year, but that, too, is something we should think about. what is the wage level. not the unemployment rate. the wage level of an employed person. >> when governor perry was running for president, he touted texas a lot, apply home state. what he was remiss in saying is you have people who were employed but were in low waning jobs and man

it works for those guys but not barack obama. that astounds me. but let's talk about the immigration idea what he has been saying on immigration. we know how it plays in congress. how is it playing in texas? >> um, as you know, as a lot of people know, one of rick santorum's problems besides the fact that he had foot-in-mouth disease in the last campaign, was that he was relatively soft from the point of view from the right, his own party on immigration. he was a relatively moderate on immigration. so was george bush. you look at john mccain, who has had a variety of positions over the years but effectively is a nuanced and informed position on immigration. you get these people along the border and many folks along the border, not everybody but many political folks along the border in states like texas understand that the immigration issue is much more difficult and nuanced. there are family connections. there are economic connections. so you have in most cases not in the case of cruz, but in the case of many of these candidates the greater recognition of the value of immigration. withexc

of culture around obama. i think we cannot not talk about that either. people want to be a part of that, whether they agree with his politics or disagree, this is a really popular president. he is the toast of the town in d.c. so to speak and people no matter what side of the aisle they're on they want to be part of the glitz and glamour that comes with this celebrity president. they want to take part of it whether they agree or not. >> cenk: we got to leave it there, but it comes with a price. that's the problem. if you cross the politicians then you're not going to get invited to the parties any more. they never cross the politicians. they never tell the truth that's why you don't trust the media. what are we doing about jobs. that's what people actually care about. since president obama has been re-elected, republicans and democrats, nothing about jobs. nothing. all right, when we come back we're talking about how to fix that system. how to get money out of politics and exactly to brian's point about what people are dissatisfied with, and what republicans and democrats agree on in th

are right, president obama signed it. but then he voted for it. he couldn't have signed it if he hadn't first voted for it. they watched the sequester kick in. we talked about this. they watched cuts to headstart. they didn't do anything about it. kids thrown out of headstart. so what? was their attitude. they watched cuts to food stamps. didn't do anything. cuts to meals on wheels and watched teachers and first responders and cops and fire fighters getting fired by many cities and counties. they didn't do anything. but cuts in the penta goodeon or military didn't do anything. but when air traffic controllers were furloughed and the very first day of the furlough there were flight delays of up to two hours in some major airports and members of congress knew they had to go home for the weekend for another 10-daybreak, which they don't deserve and they might have to wait around the airport for an hour, boy, they got their ass in gear. on thursday the senate in one day passed a bill carving out an exception to the sequester for the faa so they can put all ai
